This painting is inspired by Ba Zhai, Eight House Feng Shui, one of the easier and more common Feng Shui methods to determine the auspicious and negative positions of a building and examine whether you are well-suited with the building.


In Eight House Feng Shui, a dwelling is divided into a centre and eight sectors which correspond to the eight magnetic directions; north, south, east, west, northeast, southeast, southwest and northwest. Each of the eight magnetic directions holds a different kind of qi (energy) which will influence the respective place and the person living in it either favourably or unfavourably.


The Chinese new year of 2021 started on February 12, 2021 and will last until January 31, 2022.


Some interesting Feng Shui tips for on Chinese New Year’s Eve and the first days to a month after :

• At midnight, open doors and windows for 10 minutes, so the passing year can let in the new coming year.

• Don’t lend money on New Year’s Eve. If you do, you will lose money all year round.

• Don’t clean until the second day of the Lunar New Year, not even the dishes: you could sweep out the good luck.

• If you own a fish tank, the lucky number of fishes in 2021 is 8: for example, take 7 red goldfish and 1 blackfish. The red fish symbolize prosperity and good fortune. The blackfish will absorb negative energy.

• During New Year’s day, knives or scissors are not used because there is a risk of accidentally “cutting” the luck.

• Also on New Year’s day, do not wash or cut your hair. The first character for hair is the same for prosper. So washing or cutting hair means cutting or washing away fortune.

• Don’t buy shoes in the first lunar month. The word for shoes (haai) resembles the sound of losing and sighing in Cantonese.

• Don’t buy books during 15 days as it is considered bad luck. Also, don’t give books because it is “like wishing bad luck upon the receiver”.


Follow these tips, and the New Year can't go wrong.

Art inspires, it changes a bare environment into a pleasant space in which you like to stay or work.

Every artwork of mine is an original. I never make prints or replicas because they cannot be compared to the original, especially in terms of depth and reflection of light. If you have an artwork of mine, you are always the only one -exclusively- who has this hand-painted work of art.


Trust your gut feeling when choosing a painting. Would you first like to have my opinion about your choice or would you like some advice, then feel free to enjoy the free Art Advice.
